The Lead Developer Conference

Be a better technical leader

Buy tickets

Two days of inspiration for Lead Developers

As tech lead you have to be a great developer. But you also need to be a good team leader, be commercially astute, and stay on top of all the tech developments and trends coming over the horizon. With a balance of content across team, tools and tech, The Lead Developer conference is designed with the complexities of the job in mind.

Join the community of tech leads, engineering managers and CTOs for two days of inspiring talks and networking opportunities. For even more in-depth learning, book a ticket to one of our workshops taking place the day before the conference.

Call for Proposals is now closed

Thank you so much for an incredible response to our CFP! We're a little delayed with the CFP but we'll be in touch with all applicants in February.

Scholarship scheme

To help make the conference more inclusive, we run a scholarship scheme to provide free conference tickets. In some cases, we can also cover travel and accommodation costs for those who need it. We can also pair you up with a conference guide who will be a friendly face throughout the conference – especially if it's your first time at a conference. Application deadline: 8 February 2019.
